Champion for Youthline encouraging volunteers
Bridget McNamara will be among volunteers raising funds for Youthline during CocaCola Christmas in the Park at the Auckland Domain on December 13.
The 24-year-old was training to assist with the organisation’s Helpline service when a vacancy came up at Youthline Auckland Central in Ponsonby.
It was too good an opportunity to miss and she is now a youth development worker – as well as a volunteer counsellor.
McNamara, who has just completed her Masters Degree, encourages others to volunteer for the confidential, free and round-the-clock counselling service.
She’s also looking for help selling Santa hats, glow sticks, and other goodies during CocaCola Christmas in the Park.
